Worm Casting method... I need a link!
    #597698 - 04/03/02 03:55 PM (16 years, 5 months ago)

A month or two ago, the Spore Works had an excellent method for using worm castings on their research page, but apparently it was taken down. Did anyone happen to save the steps, or does anyone know of another site on the net with detailed instructions?

Thanks & Peace.

My brain is the burger, and my heart the charcoal.

here ya go..
Alright this is gonna take me awhile to type
1.("black gold" Worm casings)
2.Wheat straw( You chop the wheat straw up and put in a ziplock freezer back and fill with water distilled water and let it sit for an hour or two)
5.Alder shavings
You mix em all together in a large bowl And bake em in a aliminium turkey roaster pan you buy at the store the larger the better. Bake for 1hour at 250-275F then after an hour stir it up and bake for an additional 30minutes.
No youv've sterilized your compost.
As for the exact ingrediant ratio its up to you.
Use about50-60% worm casings as much or little straw as you like use about half a bag per pan more or less
use about a cup or two of vermiculite, Use a decent amount of peat moss two to three times as much verm. Maybe less And use a good amount of alder shavings I believe they contribute alot to mush size. Dont us to much though you add the alder chips dry. Add water to your mixture distilled water till damp or moist not soaking.
You'll have to add more water to your compost after you sterilize distilled of coarse.
Don't get your compost too wet or it may not work appropiatly.
I thinks thats about it.
